SUMMARY 

Type: Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea 
Origin: Wuyi Mountains, Fujian China

Wuyi Rock tea is a unique type of oolong tea that is only produced in the Wuyi Mountains which have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for cultural, scenic, and biodiversity values since 1999. Teas grown in this region are known for their "rocky" mineral characteristics or "Yan Yun". 

WHAT IS YELLOW ROSE?

Yellow Rose (Huang Mei Gui 黄玫瑰) is a hybrid of the Yellow Goddess (Huang Guan Yin黄观音) and Golden Osmanthus (Huang Jin Gui 黄金桂) cultivars, and is a relatively new and lesser known type of Rock Oolong tea that was developed by the Tea Research Institute of Fujian Academy of Agricultural Sciences. 

TASTING NOTES

A well balanced tea that’s sweet and floral with the mineral-like qualities that’s typical of Wuyi Rock Teas, with the aroma of roses. A lighter, more delicate style of Rock Tea, it serves as a great introduction to this style of Oolong tea.

PREPARATION NOTES

The best way to enjoy Wuyi Rock tea is using the traditional Gongfu brewing such as Gaiwan or Yixing tea pot. We recommend using a greater leaf to water ratio, quicker steeps and brewing the tea at higher temperatures (approx. 93 degrees). However, all of these teas still tastes great when brewed in a teapot, western style.

Gaiwan Gong-Fu style (preferred method)

Leaf weight 4g per 60 – 100ml of water
 93 – 95 degrees Celsius
 10 – 15 secs per infusion* (up to 8 infusions)

*First infusion is a quick 3 – 5 sec rinse and isn't drunk.

 

Oolong teapot Teapot steep

Leaf weight 5g per 300ml of water
Water temperature 93 – 95 degrees Celsius
Time 2.5 – 3mins (2 – 3 infusions)

 

STORAGE

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
